La Boqueria, Barcelona

(14,000+ reviews on the web)
Flea Market Shopping
Take in the local culture by meandering through the throngs of people going about their daily business at La Boqueria, arguably the country’s best-known market. Noted for selling a wide range of local products, including fish, meat, vegetables, and fruit, the market has been open since 1836. It’s worth a visit just for the colors, smells, and sights of the fresh foodstuffs displayed and sold here. Friendly vendors can tell you exactly where and how their goods were grown, raised, or harvested. Avoid driving and arrive as early as possible to miss the crowds. If you can allow time, take a seat at one of the cafes and spend a few moments observing other travelers as they search for a little bit of something Spanish to take home with them. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to La Boqueria and many more Barcelona attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Barcelona itinerary planner.

  • A market you should not miss!!!
  • Lots of veggies, natural juices and more
  • Market emblematic of barcelona. Of all life. A shame it is that it has become a Museum for tourists, that they are going to visit, photograph, and some stops responding to that offering food take away for visitors. It is very uncomfortable for residents to buy, but still the quality and a varied culinary stops. Or change the chip, or it will turn into a fast food market!
